Improved Attendance Communication at Valleyview Secondary

Posted On Friday January 14, 2022

As we work to improve communication with you as parents, I am sharing two new updates to our attendance management system:


  1. Safe Arrival: Starting on Monday, January 17, there will be a safe arrival phone call home to parents of any students who are absent from class and unexcused by 9:30 am.

    You will still be able to use the School Messenger app or absence line to let us know when your student will be away, however, there will be a cut off time for you to do that. After 8:30 am, you will not be able to enter any absences through the app or toll free line. Instead, you will have to call the school directly. 


  1. Text Message Option:  Please review this document and text the letter "y" to the number listed in the flyer to use this new service.  The mobile number you have already provided to our office will then be able to receive text messages from us.  For more information, please go to the School District 73 website under the heading of Attendance/Safe Arrival.


Again, these updates are intended to improve our communication to parents and ensure that your child arrives to school safely! 

If you have any questions about these updates, please do not hesitate to connect with us.
